Equipment to bring (if you have it):

  • Fly rod & reel (4wt – 6wt)

  • Leader material (nothing under 6x)
  • Fishing will be done in boats, no need to bring full waders

If you do not have some of that equipment, no need to run to your fly shop to get it (unless you want to), we’ll have some on hand that you can use.  And “What about the flies?” you say. We’ll have a selection of flies that will be available for purchase along with other accessories essential to maximize your odds of catching fish!
